Great food and wine

Booked this place last minute as we had not previously made plans. Was concerned initially as the mid-table ranking on Tripadvisor but as most recent reviews were positive we decided to give it a go. Really pleased we did, this place deserves a much higher ranking. Great menu and wine list, nice... read more

We were wondering around the area where we were staying, trying to find a tapas place that did more for vegetarians than 'potato bravas' (harder than you might think!) when we came across this restaurant. Not only do they have a good choice of vegetarian dishes, they do a fixed- price veggie tapas menu and everything on it was absolutely... More

Exciting menu based on locally grown food Catalan style. The menu is worth spending some extra time exploring the descriptions to understand the origins of the food types and typical preparations. Just loved it!

We had a lovely meal in this very natural relaxed styled restaurant. The waitress was helpful in explaining the menu in English. The food was really healthy but absolutely delicious. If you want a healthy natural feast head here

The food was amazing. I loved the veggie cannelons and the cheeses we got to try on the cheese platter. They really break down pan catalon which is fun to prepare yourself at your table after getting it so many different ways in other restaurants.

We were a family of kids and adults in need of Spanish food but we were bored of tapas. This place offered Catalonia cuisine and was recommended by our hotel. The produce was fresh and the food tasted great! A lot of vegetarian options as well! Their creme catelania as desert was a highlight! Will definitely come back!! Check out... More

properly prepared and with excellent raw ingredients. We had local cheese and salami, a superb fish soup and two portions of bacalau. Enough to make our stomach happy. Food tasty, but light. Personnel friendly and informative on the menu. We had our meal at the table by the bow-window and the sight of the placa was just beautiful.

Couldn't get into this place because it was so busy overtime we went passed. Eventually got a table on our third visit and was not disappointed. My wife who is generally a bit funny about new food attacked her plate of chicken and bubble and squeak like a starving woman leaving a clean plate. My pheasant salad and braised stuffed... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
